Thursday afternoon, my latest article to bphope.com, called “Birthday Depression, Life Changes, and Anxiety to Go with It“, went live. I wrote this post a couple of days before my birthday. If you’ve been following this blog over the last few weeks, you would’ve noticed that this had been a constant theme that I have discussed.
This week I have been extremely tired, and it has made it a little difficult for me to work. There was one day this week that I completely slept the day away. The meds I take don’t really make things much better; sometimes they sedate me too well. But I think they are finally starting to mellow me out.
Despite my stupor days, recovering from my birthday celebration (which was surprisingly great), and complete tiredness (in addition to being fucking cold here in Georgia), I have accomplished quite a bit. Business is moving just fine and I’m looking forward to what this year has to offer; though it’s scary at the same time.
Lately, I’ve spoken with quite of few people who deal with bipolar disorder and found my work. While I’m not going to disclose the levels of our conversations, I will say that it’s always good when I have people who I can connect with. We realize that we’re not alone in this struggle, even though sometimes we feel like we are. I feel so grateful that my work is really reaching out to the world. It’s motivating and I have plans to further expand them.
As for me, I’m still dealing with my issues, but I feel better. Hopefully, the next week will be better, and I won’t be as exhausted.
In the meanwhile, stay healthy, stay warm, and stay blessed. Talk to you soon.
